European Commission: "The European Commission has launched a call for tenders for a study on copyright and new technologies. The time limit for receipt of tenders is 03/04/2020 16:00 hours CET (study reference: SMART 2019/0038).
The aim of the study is to help European creative industries unleash the potential of new technologies. The study will look into two issues related to copyright and new technologies: the management of copyright data linked to protected content and the interaction between artificial intelligence (AI) and the creative industries.
The study will identify and quantify the economic impact of current issues related to metadata management in the copyright industries. The study will investigate the ways in which new technologies can contribute to improving the efficiency and transparency of licensing of content and management of rights.
In addition, the study will examine issues related to the use of copyright-protected content as input of AI technologies as well as to the production of cultural outputs by or with the assistance of AI technologies."
